I suggest you...

Multiple Control Panel Users Per Account

It would be nice if you could delegate/manage/authorize multiple users in the control panel... like Slicehost.

The idea of one admin user / account sucks. There's no way to collaborate without sharing your admin credentials...

        The new role based user accounts needs a feature so that our accounts dept can log in and get invoices

        You should be *massively* embarrassed that you list as a "new feature": "No more sharing login information"...

      • loxlieloxlie commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        The billing role is the most important one! We're just asking for what your old (and vastly better) service had...

        Triple yes - this is the main issues preventing me from using your service. I setup an account and couldn't believe that I couldn't set up different user permissions. So my account sits idle while others have my business.

        Thanks for updating the API document, it now explains about multiple API users. Still, multiple control panel users is the key requirement. I don't know many organizations that build their own API tools, particularly when a good control panel exists.

        Last update was 9 months ago, any news?

        Seems like this would an awesome opportunity for someone to create a small app hosted on heroku. Since the API allows multi-user access, someone could layer on more fine-grained permissions to allow organizations to dole out less privileged access.

        Spent some time trying to discover whether someone has already started a github project for this, but no dice.

        Can we get a timeline on this functionality so that I know whether it's worth investing my time in a custom solution?

        I have to say I am very surprised that this feature is not available! This exposes customers to allot of risk.

        To move from small cloud based hosting to this and not to be able to have the security of roles/permissioning is unbelievable. This needs to be a top priority, it's a security concern at so many levels!

      • Michael Scott ShappeMichael Scott Shappe commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        The fact that I was forced to move from Slicehost (which had this feature) to Rackspace before this was implemented is criminal.

        I really need a billing login that only has access to the invoices. Every month I have to log in, download the invoice and forward it to our finance dept. With all our other suppliers the finance dept can get the invoice themselves but there is no way I'm giving the 17yo girl in finance the login details to our cloud account in case she deletes the servers or worse!

        Agreed. The Cloud Hosting Control Panel needs to allow for multiple administrators with varying levels of account access. Some sort of ACL is absolutely required from a compliance perspective. I would add there should also be logging of activity so one can see who is doing what from within the control panel.
